The Grinch for Good Food Drive sponsored by G.C. Hartman Elementary recently came to an end with plentiful supplies of food on their way to local food banks and the hearts of the school’s students “grown” by the experience. The students collected 1,837 food items, earmarked for delivery to the Catawissa and Elysburg food banks. “Wonderful things are happening for others!” exclaimed one of the project’s organizers, 4th Grade Teacher Mrs. Andreia Walshaw. In addition to being an excellent exercise of good citizenship, the food drive also allowed the students to practice their communication skills with each composing a short narrative explaining how “their hearts grow by helping others.” According to Principal John Fetterman, the top grade levels earned a prize “but all students helped their hearts grow three sizes with this project. “  Congratulations students and staff on a job well-done!
